Some information about our partnership with Vivastreet
« on: 17 July 2015, 11:14:13 am »
National Ugly Mugs and Vivastreet announce new partnership

Vivastreet is incredibly proud to announce a new partnership with the award-winning National Ugly Mugs charity.

National Ugly Mugs is an essential operation providing escorts and sex workers with timely SMS or email alerts when someone or something dangerous is happening in their area.

From now on, every single advertiser in the escort and massage section of Vivastreet will be able to join the National Ugly Mugs website and alert services and Vivastreet will make a donation on their behalf to help cover the costs and let National Ugly Mugs continue their important work.

Alex Feis-Bryce, Director of Services, National Ugly Mugs says "We're really pleased that Vivastreet are acknowledging the importance of sex worker safety by encouraging their members to sign up to National Ugly Mugs and donating to us to help us stay in operation.  We are constantly faced with a battle to raise enough funds to avoid closure and I'm sure sex workers will be reassured that some of the money they pay for advertising will be donated to a scheme that could save their life or help them avoid a rapist. Safety is a human right and all too often, due to stigma and criminalisation, sex workers are denied that right."


"I think it is extremely important to support National Ugly Mugs. Escorts deserve the right to expect safety in their workplace and getting alerts when there is something dangerous they need to be aware of will help protect every one. We're proud to be covering the costs of this for our advertisers and helping National Ugly Mugs continue their award-winning work" said Damian Jennings, Marketing Manager at Vivastreet who has pioneered this partnership.
